Glad to see the tax payer funded "stimulus" (no pun intended) is being used to put people out of work.

I still don't understand WHY the United States tax payer should be buying condoms for foreign citizens in foreign countries.

If private charities, or the UN want to do it, fine, but it shouldn't be something the American Taxpayer is funding, given all of our own problems.

Maybe the govt can ask the Alabama Condom company to make a cheaper condom, and remove the groovy colors and cotton candy flavoring.

There are millions of men everywhere absolutely depending on that cotton candy flavoring.

Condom companies are known for their flexability.

You know, now that I think about it, given certain inuendo and stereotypes, I wouldn't think that condoms made for chinese use would work worldwide, especially in Africa or iowania.

You just can't put 2lbs of beef into a 6oz package.

The Alabama company will be fine. I'm sure they have a reservoir of cash.

They have handed out 10 billion condoms around the world at $.05 apiece?

Why the hell are we spending $500,000,000 on condoms for people in other countries?

I could care less if people in some other part of the world have condoms.

Condoms are tools of the devil. UP TO TEN AIDS VIRUSES CAN FIT THROUGH THE HOLES OF A SINGLE CONDOM.

I remember when some batshit nutjob tried to tell me that in Sunday School when I was 15.

I didn't mince words in telling her that her opinion was catastrophically stupid.

It's the truth. Jack Chick said so.

It's a trap. These condoms have lead in them and are made from the diseased dog food the Americans refused after the pet food scare. They will fail, so Americans will get AIDS AND lead poisoning, and will lead to China finally taking control as the world's strongest power.

The truth is that you can still get some pretty serious sh*t even if you're wearing one.
